Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Tis' the season of colder temps, warm cozy food and sweets & cookies everywhere. 

This recipe was shared with me ten years ago at my wedding shower from a dear friend. It has become my a go-to for neighbor holiday gifts, school cookie drives, and just the most cozy, homey dessert you ever did have.  

The best part….they are good and delicious ANY time of year.
